In loving memory of my Father-In-Law. Not only was he my husbands father, but very much a father figure to me, and a very special person in my life. So many good times and memories are forever in our hearts. Daddy Bob loved to fish, he loved calling me his bucket girl, for he gave me the worms to carry, I treasure those times, and the fish stories shared. He is sadley missed by his family and thought of fondly with Love

Katie, you have gone home to Heaven only a short time ago. The heart ache, and the over whelming feeling of grief and loss is still much to new to our hearts, You were my best friend, There was not anything you and I could not talk about, I always felt like you were my protector, and always had my back, And I loved you for that, I miss you so much Katie, I look at the pictures with you and all of the Grand kids and my heart breaks I know the love you had for each and everyone of them. The only thing that can bring a smile to my heart, and mind is knowing you are with Daddy Bob. And that is such a wonderful feeling to the whole family, We love you and miss you and we will all be together. I miss those blue eyes, your smile and your laugh,,, I wish the world could have known you. I love you.

It has been 3 years since God saved you from your pain and suffering. I am so grateful that you found peace. Now I pray that you give me the strength I need to continue my search for comfort and trust in the Lord. I know I cannot be angry at God for taking you from us so soon, they say He takes the best ones first. It has just been so hard for me to come to terms with loosing you. You were the best brother someone could ever ask for. I just wish I took the chance to hug you and tell you I loved you and how proud I was of you. I thought I would have one more day. I know you hear my prayers, but it is just not the same as having you here. I love you Bunky. Love, Anna-Your sister baby.

It's been 13 years, and you are not missed any less than you were the day you passed. You were an 11 year old boy whom shared wisdom at high levels. You shined whether the sun did or not.

You are forever appreciated and never forgotten. Your sister loves and misses you. Till we meet again.

Sorry I never told you all I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
'Cause you've flown away, so far away
Never had I imagined we'd be living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me - it keeps me alive, alive
And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together one sweet day

CrossLynnessa Rose Rheal
By Krista Rheal, PA USA
August 24 - August 25, 1997

In memory of our little angel, Lynnessa. She was born on August 24th of last year, but our Heavenly Father took her to be with Him on August 25th. When she was born and we found out that she couldn't breathe--she had what they call a maconium (that's the best I can do with the spelling) and it lined her lungs--we became very upset. Lynnessa was rushed to another hospital without me and I was devestated. I only got to hold my little girl for five minutes before they rushed her to the other hosptial. I got transferred the next day to that same hospital so that I could be with my husband and Lynnessa. She passed on in the afternoon of the 25th. If it had not been for my faith and love for Jesus, I would have give up all hope after that. What calmed me down the night of the 24th was the 23rd Psalm. If you don't know it, please read it. They are words to live by. God spoke to me that night through those words. Here's what the words say:

"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For Thou art with me; They rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever."

--Psalm 23--

Dear Dad, I know we didn't see eye to eye after you and Mom got divorced and we have lost touch over the years. I never stopped loving you or forgot you but there were too many hurts. My heart broke when they called me that night and said you were gone; you went so fast. I wonder what your last thoughts were? You saved my life this summer - July 25, 1998, when I was hemorrhaging in surgery and they called the family in. You came to me and tole me to go back. I will never question your love for me again. You showed it when you gave me another chance and I love you from the bottom of my heart and I miss you. I have had four surgeries since then. I have felt you on my right shoulder helping me make it through. Mom got me a guardian angel pin and that is where I wear it constantly on my right shoulder so that I know you are watching out for me and trying to make me better. I love you and miss you.

And your little girl, Megan, the one who was just 5 months old when you choose to leave us. The beautiful daughter who is now 16 years old and never had the chance to know you as I did. You would be so proud of the beautiful girl, the one with your sly grin, the one whose veins your blood runs through. It's been the hardest on Grandpa and especially Grandma, who after 16 years still cannot bear to go back to the place wear she laid you to rest. But we visit you often for her, and hope to see you in heaven where you are now free from all your pain and from all your addictions. We love you forever.

Only 3 months and you would have been home for Christmas. I think of you often and miss you dearly. You did get to see your niece at 3 months old but never the nephew who was named after you and looks so much like you. I am sure you are in heaven and hope to hug you again some day.

On this date of your sudden and tragic death, know that you are always remembered in our hearts and minds. Dan hasn't laughed again as he did with you because no one else we know possesses your wit, your character, your soul. At our wedding, the Best Man wasn't there because no one could fill your shoes. You are missed, Greg Rumley, and will never die as you reside in our memories forever. As Tigger would say, TTFN friend, son, brother.

Memories are treasures that no one can steal, death is a heartache that nothing can heal. Some may forget you now that you're gone but we will remember no matter how long our hearts still ache with sadness our eyes shed many tears. God only knows how much we miss you. It has been lonely since you left us life has not been the same all the world would be like heaven just to see your face again.

MaryEllen, I want you to know that your father had much courage, character, and heart. I say courage because, over his 21 years, fourth months, and three days on this bouncing ball, he faced adversities that most of us will never have to endure. Much pain, much hurt. But, he had the courage of a lion. He stood for all that is right and good. He protected your Grandmother as if she were his own daughter. He stemmed the tide of much evil that sought to tempt his family and friends. And, he never surrendered to cowardice. Never. Character and courage always.

And heart. Wall to wall, treetop tall heart. Miles and miles of heart. A heart so big, so loving, that all who met him forever remembered him. A smile and twinkling eyes that told all that he cared for them. That he had a secret that he just might share with them. If, and I mean Only If, they were nice. I wish that you will always respect his memory. I will help. PawPaw

"Have you ever lost a loved one,
Who was very dear to you.
One you loved so very much,
And miss her like we do.
Have you ever had a heartache,
Or ever felt the pain,
Or ever shed those bitter tears
That drop like rain.
If you never had that feeling,
I pray you never do.
For when God takes a loved one,
He takes a part of you."

I cant help but think that you chosing to make the selfish decision of suicide was nothing somewhat of an arrogant and cowardess choice but i have turned to go many times and he has showed me that i was not the cause of the choice but only the thing keeping him alive, slowly killing him. God is a powerful man, i hope you are respecting him more now he has forgiven you.

i like to hope so.

Tommy, you were a ministry to others in life and death. You will always be remembered as the wonderful, happy Christian young man that you were. Hundreds attended your services and learned all about your life. It's a shame you didn't get to go into missions as you had wished, and even worse that you can't see how many lives you touched because of your own life. We will all miss you, but we praise God for the things He is doing in our churches and schools through your death. We look forward to seeing you in Heaven.
